you know what, i was gonna try to help and correct and advise, but it seems to me that there are really only a few legitimate gripes here. most of the issues are related to ammo, ammo selection [22's are picky, and certain ammo's are garbage], not knowing how to shoot [accurately], and not being familiar enough with the firearm/s in question.

marlin model 60 owners: a problem i ran into with mine, was the ejector wire being out of alignment, its actually a pretty simple fix, once you learn it, go here and check out the stickies at top, very helpful.

beretta 21A, they are ammo sensitive, [as are 98% all rimfire 22's], they need broken in [including new mags], and like to be kept clean, also they have a short sight-radius, but can still be amazingly accurate at 25 yards [in a sight vice] and 10-15 yards free-hand. go here to learn about beretta rimfires http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=54

and in general, rimfirecentral.com is a great place for advice [and yes there are crap rimfires out there]

WEll.... in 2009, I bought my daughter a walther p22... and untill we found the right ammo... it had its problems.. BUT.. after we ran 200 thru it, and broke it and the mags in... it has proven to be a reliable handgun for her... and it loves to be clean. Now looking at a Bond for her in 22/22m and 38/357 for her cc..

Some people forget that although Remington (and others combined to form Freedom Group in 2007) is owned by Cerberus, they can and in fact did buy Marlin in January 2008. Even though these companies are owned by Cerberus they still perform day-to-day operations as any other company.

phildenton, you for got to add the Rimfire Central link to the Marlin semi-auto page. You're absolutely right though, one of the best rimfire forums on the web. The Marlin 60 can be a headache at times and stubborn when it comes to ammo choice, but most problems are a simple fix and bulk ammo from Remington, Winchester or Federal usually run fine.

Not a problem. I forget stuff all the time, glad there's an edit feature on most forums.

I have a Jennings i inherited from my father-in-law... I polished the feed ramp with fine steel wool and it shoots great with CCI Mini-Mags round nose. It Jams with about any other type of ammo however. Yea its a piece of crap but for $45 bucks dealer cost when it was new its kinda cool..

If the jennings is like a jeminez the take it out and put a box of 550 through it. It will swell the slide and it will function fine afterwards.

I bought a .22 Cricket youth rifle for my stepson, and it is very picky on ammo for a single shot. It would only eject the spent case 50% of the time, and fail to fire 25%. I have ordered a new ejector and firing pin so we shall see. He loves it when we go rabbit hunting. Feels like one of the big kids packing his rifle!

Seems to me that while quite accurate, pretty much any semi 22 made by Remington has been a piece of crap. I had the viper and it was very accurate but was a bad jammer, my buddy had the 552 speedmaster, it was also a piece of crap. There was the Remington model 66 also known as the Nylon 66 which I have no experience with but have heard some not so good things, then there's the 597 which came out after the Viper was discontinued, I haven't owned one of these but at the time they came out my local gunshop refused to carry them due to jamming issues. So though it pains me to say it because I am a big Remington fan, their 22s are crap. I bought a ruger 10/22, cant go wrong with a design that has been around for so long, the only failure it has experienced was due to a cheapo plastic 30rd clip i picked up to try, pos.
